And Chapter 7 in your Text: Improvisation
Modern Cont. Concert Dance Today and Improv
Please view the following clips!
Improv- one way of approaching choreography: we will look at Contact Improv, Improv with Forsythe, and Naharin’s Gaga technique this week.
Improv with William Forsythe:
History of Contact Improv:
Contact Improv: 1972
Dance Theatre- Pina Bausch- her work is hugely theatrical. Notice the way in which she expresses ideas through movement. Dance Theatre.
*Please read this brief dance review of Café Muller as it is challenging to view out of context (there is an additional review here of Rite of Spring by Bausch, which are not responsible for)
Café Muller in its entirety:
Café Muller excerpt- Pina Bausch:
Kontakthoff- Pina Bausch (this clip includes commentary in German for which you are obviously not responsible for, just watch the dance to give you an idea of Bausch’s work)
Traditional Ballet infused with Contemporary Modern Dance
In the Middle Somewhat Elevated
The Second Detail: Forsythe
The Magic of Gaga and Ohad Naharin: see the way in which Naharin uses his Gaga technique to develop choreography, another way of using a form of improv.
Side Note: Batsheva Dance Company is my personal favorite dance company in the world. Based in Israel, this group of dancers led by the masterful Naharin, is an amazingly committed, talented, and inspired group of artists. I hope you enjoy these pieces (Echad Mi Yodea and Max) as much as I do. The Gaga technique is also fascinating.
Ohad Naharin and Gaga:
Echad Mi Yodea: Batsheva
Pite and Cloudgate- contemporary modern dance artists
Crystal Pite: Tempest Pike
